Zentangle



I was at the art store today and was inspired to try Zentagle doodling.

Ick!

Our house was recently hit with the plague. K has a double ear infection and hand foot and mouth. B has hand foot and mouth. C has mono and some crazy all over viral rash. I keep waiting to see what unlucky illness I will catch. 

In more exciting news Keira has taken her first steps. She went from barely taking 1 step yesterday to taking 6 today!  So fun.

Date Night



B and I haven't had a date night away from the kids in ages. Our amazing friend is watching the kiddos so we can have a whole overnight away!  I forgot how much fun it is not to have any responsibilities. 

We had dinner at McCormicks and Schmick's, did a little shopping, and hit PF Changs for dessert. Doesn't get much better then that...the best part is that we are already anticipating an undisturbed night of sleep *sigh* what bliss. 

PS. Apparently B just discovered an article that states that flatulence can prevent illness - so fart on people, fart on!

Manduka Go Play Review

I have a Manduka yoga mat (that I love) and it is a bit too thick and too wide for some of the standard carrying bags. It also doesn't stay rolled up well so is a pain to drag around. I ordered A Manduka Go Play and I am thrilled. The adjustable clip straps are easy to use, stay closed way better then D rings and could fit many different sized mats. It even fits a yogi toes towel wrapped inside my super thick mat. The zipper pocket is perfect for keys, a cell phone, and a small wallet or a few cards. The only thing that doesn't fit is a water bottle.  I would highly recommend the Go Play - it makes carrying a heavy large mat way easier and consolidates all the other things I bring into one place.

Wooden Path

B and I spent the weekend building this wooden path.  I am so excited - I love the finished product. 



Then we celebrated with a bit of this...

Happy 4th of July


One of our neighbors had a few fireworks and Chase thought they were the coolest thing ever. 



The sparklers made him a little nervous (sparklers are my favorite). 


He was so excited he could hardly contain himself. 



Happy 4th!


WW2 Pops Camp

Last week Chase didn't have camp so he spent a week at Pops camp (it is truly the happiest place on Earth for that boy). He was highly disappointed that it was a holiday week so it was only 4 days of fun. They played games, played catch, saw an IMAX, built models, and even saw a tank.

Dear Yoga, 
I'm sorry we broke up for so long. Happy to be back at it!

See you soon (and often),
K

Knit Capelet

I made this lace weight knit capelet (I just winged the pattern). I used a mohair yarn and size 11 needles. I made the neck wider then I would have liked but otherwise I am pretty happy with it.
